Governor Whitmer Extends Deadline for Tax Foreclosure

LANSING - Today Governor Gretchen Whitmer signed a new executive order into effect that will extend the deadline for Michigan residents to pay back taxes they owe in order to avoid foreclsoure on their property while the COVID-19 pandemic continues.

Executive Order 2020-14 takes effect immediately and will move the tax foreclosure deadline from March 31, 2020 to May 29, 2020, or 30 days after the state of emergency declared in Executive Order 2020-4 is terminated, whichever comes first.

"This executive order will give families struggling to make ends meet real and immediate relief from the pressure of having their home foreclosed on while trying to focus on the health and safety of their loved ones," Governor Whitmer stated. "This order is the latest in a series of steps to protect the public, slow the spread of COVID-19, and give families comfort during these uncertain times."
